Apple Announces 128 GB iPad 4 with Retina Display

Apple today confirmed the arrival of the 128 GB iPad 4 with Wi-Fi and Cellular + Wi-Fi. The company’s move provides twice the storage capacity of the 64 GB models in order to store more valuable content such as photos, projects, presentations, movies, music, apps and more.

iPad-4th generation

“With more than 120 million iPads sold, it’s clear that customers around the world love their iPads, and everyday they are finding more great reasons to work, learn and play on their iPads rather than their old PCs,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “With twice the storage capacity and an unparalleled selection of over 300,000 native iPad apps, enterprises, educators and artists have even more reasons to use iPad for all their business and personal needs.”

Rumours of the 128 GB model began to surface right after the fifth beta of iOS 6.1 was released on Saturday — which turned out to be the exact build that was released to the public on Monday — and later confirmed by 9to5Mac’s sources, who also provided pricing info.

The new models will hit the stores and Apple’s online store on 5 February, both in black and white, for a suggested retail price of $799 for the Wi-Fi only model, and $929 for the Cellular + Wi-Fi model.

    I Just bought iPad 4 with 64GB yesterday. I feel ripped off now since I paid $829. I will return it so I get the 128BG for $100 extra. Apple should stop screwing customers with this surprise releases.

    Why buy a 1000$ ipad when you could get a mac book air instead ?

  • FragilityG4

    And this situation is different from which other company?

    They’re not screwing anyone over, you’re buying their product.

  • Tony

    You’re the one buying their product. Stop complaining.

    I think I’d like this better, though if Apple dropped the prices of all of the iPads with Retina Display, so that the 128GB model would be the same price of the current 64GB model.

    Looking forward to a 128GB iPad Mini with LTE, Retina Display and A6X or A7 processor. Hopefully that’s coming this year.

    Stop crying over spilled milk. Apple is not screwing anyone over. They are a company and their main goal, like ANY other company, is to flip a profit. You need to find more fulfilling things to do with your life than be negative about everything.

    Why do you feel ripped off when you know, and so willingly, and said out loud, gonna return it and pay another $100 for the 128GB? What’s the difference?

  • gerry

    Yet again you’ll get stupid people who’ll shell out $1000 for a tablet.

    Yeah you’re lucky to be able to return it and found out so soon.

  • wuju

    I’m look for the 128G iPad mini with Retina too.

  • Steveski

    Anyone think we’ll see a 128GB iPhone within the next year?
